ASRock X79 Extreme9 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve absolutely powered through a bunch of ASRock motherboards recently. First we checked out the ASRock X79 Extreme4 which came in at an awesome price point. From there we checked out the mATX version, the ASRock X79 Extreme4-M. Today, though, it`s all about the new high end board from the guys at ASRock, the X79 Extreme9. Everything about the X79 Extreme9 seems to be big and the big box is where we`ll be starting today. Once we`ve done that we`ll move inside the box to see what ASRock is offering us with the X79 Extreme9 before we move onto the motherboard. Once we`ve done that we`ll get into the BIOS to see how that looks before we check out the testbed, cover overclocking potential and finally see the performance the X79 Extreme9 has to offer us."

[Affiliates News] Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Z68 Mo therboard Review @ APH
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 4:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are still relatively young -- and by young, I mean in your late teens to early 20s -- then you should still be somewhat steamed out from finals week that just occurred recently (Some of us not even a day ago from when I wrote this). Personally, I can attest to disliking the December finals week quite a bit more than the April finals week, because it seems to take a lot out of the Christmas holiday anticipation. Instead of earnestly awaiting the arrival of Santa, we find ourselves cramped up in our study halls up until the 21st without even eying the awaited presents that sit snugly under our tree. Snowfall becomes a nuisance, as city transit becomes delayed much more often than it should. Before we know it, it`s Thursday, December 22, 2011, 2:21AM, and I am still awake writing the Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P motherboard review introduction. Wait a second, did I just explain my situation? Well, unfortunately, yes. I am quite sure many of us have found ourselves in this position as well. And now that I think about it, Christmas Day is no more than 54 hours away, and I have yet to begin my shopping. Oh, but of course, the Gigabyte motherboard review comes first! If I had a moment`s time to breathe, I would simply go through all the amazing technological developments of 2011. However, since I do not have the luxury of such a physiological need, I will sum up the entire year with a few words, letters, and numbers. Sandy Bridge, H67, P67, and lastly, Z68. So without further adieu, let us plow through the last motherboard review of the year here at APH Networks!"

ECS X79R-AX (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 6:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to motherboards, ECS probably isn`t one of the first names that pop into your head. Instead it will be companies like ASUS, ASRock, GIGABYTE and MSI. Earlier in the year, though, we checked out the A75 based ECS A75F-A and it did a good job of impressing us and being a pretty nice all round board. Today, though, we take the time to check out something a lot higher end in the form of the Intel X79 based X79R-AX. We saw ECS do a pretty good job with the lower end A75 board; it will be interesting to see how they handle the new high end chipset from Intel along with our high end i7 3960X CPU."

ASRock X79 Extreme4-M (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve followed what goes on with the ASRock model numbers, you would know that the -M refers to the board using the mATX Format. The mATX boards from ASRock, though, don`t only bring with it a smaller board, they also bring with it a cheaper price and at the time of writing the ASRock Extreme4-M is the cheapest X79 motherboard available at Newegg, coming in at $218.99 US. It will be interesting to see how the cheapest X79 board performs today. Before we see how the X79 Extreme4-M performs, though, we need to check out the package and bundle to see what ASRock are offering us in that department; once we`ve done that we`ll take a closer look at the board before we move into the BIOS."

ASRock X79 Extreme4 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just absolutely powering through the motherboards we have on offer today, we`re going to look at the first of the three ASRock boards that we have currently sitting around us. Outside of the Extreme4 that we`ll be looking at today, we also have the awesome looking Micro-ATX X79 Extreme4-M and the new ultra high end board from the company - the X79 Extreme9. Today is all about the $234.99 US X79 Extreme4 and isn`t just the cheapest X79 board we`ve looked at, but it`s actually one of the cheapest X79 motherboards currently on the market period. What`s that mean, though? Are we missing out on things we need when compared to some of the ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI boards we`ve looked at? Maybe performance isn`t as strong?"

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
